High drama as monkeys wed in India

High drama as monkeys wed in India

INDIA - THE tale, set in the forests of north-western India, had all the ingredients of a perfect Bollywood love story: emotion, celebration, star-crossed lovers and a nail-biting climax.

The only difference was that the lovers were monkeys, taking part in India's first simian wedding - with the whole unfolding drama a classic clash between age-old village belief and the demands of modern life sceptical of that way of thought.

Hindu belief includes worship of animals as avatars of the gods. Monkeys have an especially significant role in Hindu mythology where they are worshipped as avatars of Hanuman, the mighty ape that aided Rama in his fight against evil.

So when plans for the wedding of Raju and Chinki were laid in the small village of Talwas, deep in the forests of Rajasthan, villagers responded with excitement.

Raju, the groom, was famous in Banetha village, about 55km from Talwas, attracting crowds whenever he went outside. He was known for eating, sleeping and smoking cigarettes with his owner, Ramesh Saini, who treated him like a son.

'I want to enjoy the feelings of a son's marriage through Raju's wedding,' said Rajesh, a 38-year-old married but childless auto rickshaw driver who nursed Raju back to health after finding him unconscious three years ago.
